Zephyrhills mayor enters state House race


Mayor Burgess enters state House race

Mayor Danny Burgess has filed to run in the Florida House District 38 race to replace Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, who is term-limited. Burgess, 27, a Republican and a local attorney, is the youngest mayor to serve in Zephyrhills. He filed with the state Division of Elections on Tuesday. He'll face two political newcomers: Dade City Democrat Beverly Anne Ledbetter, 60, who teaches at Saint Leo University; and Trinity Republican Minerva "Minnie" Diaz, 51, a former Air Force officer and real estate agent.
